Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Meredith Kiger
One in a series of eight about the "ABC's of the Natural World," this title explores atmosphere to zero emissions and all the letters in between using the environment as its focus. Designed for emergent readers, the large pages are filled with colorful photos and challenging text that informs students about the elements of our environment, both positive and negative. It is a real science lesson using contemporary "hot topics" that should interest students of various skill levels. Detailed but appropriate definitions and discussions about threats to our environment as well as small things that even children can do daily to protect the environment are included. The photos include young children interacting in positive ways with the environment, as well as eye catching photos of unusual animals and places. It is a thorough introduction to an age group that could be making a difference in our environment. There are quiz pages, a glossary, and an index included. It is a great example of learning to read for a purpose. Reviewer: Meredith Kiger, Ph.D.
School Library Journal
K-Gr 4—These titles vary in their usefulness and complexity. Consistency is a problem. In Continents, seven places are named at the beginning under "The 'A' Continents" when only six begin with that letter, and the "Q" entry is "Quartz," which is a bit specific for a book on this topic. Similarly, the first chapter of Animals is "Animals in Danger," but "Rhinoceros" represents "R." In all of the titles, specific names of things, insects, continents, or animals are mixed with generalized categories like "Habitat loss," for "H" in Environment. The books are visually appealing, with color photos on every page, and include a variety of children, animals, and natural environments. They might expose children to new words and curious creatures, but they're strictly additional purchases.—Erlene Bishop Killeen, Stroughton Area School District, WI
